Yes, I said it. We are awful from time to time….and if you disagree, you aren’t being honest. I’m writing this blog in honor of men and what they put up with from us 😉
Now, let me say first, this is not an out for awful man behavior, because we all know two wrongs don’t make a right, but I’m just being honest and letting men know some of us admit how difficult we can be.
Sometimes, I can’t even stand myself. How bad is that?? I even have inner monologue at times that says, “Hey, come on now, you know you shouldn’t say that, it’s rude.” And then the other inner monologue that says, “Who gives a rat’s ass, I’m not happy and by golly I’m going to make everyone else miserable too!” Yeah, awful right? And when I’m mad, there’s no winning. I want to be left alone, but I also want people to know I’m mad. I’m fairly certain there is no way to make me happy because I don’t even know what would make me happy.
I suppose the only defense I can put out there is the hormone one. It’s totally real, I even get mad at myself for being so irrational during what I’ve heard called “shark week.” (Clever, eh? 😉 ) I’m not sure how turning us into a raving lunatic (ok, maybe a little dramatic, just a bit) once a month just because our body isn’t making a baby is very helpful for convincing the male of our species that it’s a good idea to try again. Though I can say that after watching some of those educational videos on animals and their mating rituals I think male homo sapiens don’t have it the worst.
So, there you go guys, now you have it in print, women are awful from a woman herself. And the fact that my readers are mostly female, I’m pretty sure I’m not in any danger or revealing a woman/sisterhood type secret here. Well, except for my husband and he knew all this already, he’s just too nice to say anything.
